Winterfest for the College Bound
High-School Boys Invitational
January 3-5, 2014
College coaches from around the country will be in attendance while the top teams and players in the region showcase their talents.
The Lacrosse Outreach Foundation is honored and excited to host another Winterfest for the College Bound weekend of events. Student-Athletes participating in the event learn about the various levels and characteristics of collegiate lacrosse and gain invaluable knowledge of the recruiting process. In addition to the wealth of information provided during the event, the athletes will showcase their talents to college coaches, while playing in a three day highly competitive tournament. Every year we host the top high school teams in the state and form Winterfest specific regional all-star teams. The All Star teams give every qualified player in the state an opportunity to participate regardless of the competitiveness of their program.
ALL STAR TEAMS: Winterfest specific, regional All-Star teams are forming right now! Individuals receiving post season honors of 1st team All-Conference and register by November 1 are guaranteed a spot. Additionally, high school coaches can recommend a student-athlete for the event, who they believe to have the desire and ability to play College Lacrosse. All Star Registration is $110/player.
REGISTRATION: All Star space is limited, register now
We will close registration down for teams as they fill. In our efforts to best serve all participants, Lacrosse Outreach limits All-Star rosters to 24 spots. In the event an All-Star team is overfilled with invited players, Lacrosse Outreach reserves the right to move or reject registrants at its sole discretion. All Star Registration is $110/player.
